    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    My one rig thats running Ubuntu has a 1055t on a ddr2 gigabyte board. And that install have been through multiple systems. All I have ever done with it is pull the HDD from one rig and pop in into another a boot it up. By all laws and such it should have boinked the install by now but it is going strong.

    Yeah, I've done that with W7 installs too. I don't know what am I doing wrong with Ubuntu. I just install, boot, download boinc and leave it running.

    Tried Folding@Home? Just because it isn't WCG doesn't mean it shouldn't be done. ;)

    F@H, or POEM@home if you do not wish to run another client beside BOINC. POEM is also about protein folding like F@H.

    Few years ago I tried DNETC@HOME. ATI cards handled those very well back then. Liked that project for some reason.

    well I took my cruncher into work yesterday to use as my work machine and found it crapped out this morning. One of the drives in raid 0 died! Luckily I had a work backup machine I keep in these situations so now I and going to yank the drives and install 3 x 160GB drives in raid 0 that I know are healthy. Should have it back up for points tomorrow.

    Due to the increasing heat outside (92F) and 82F inside the office, I'm going to indefinitely suspend my oldest machines in an effort to try and keep the office temperature reasonable. Much like Norton's GTX 580 folder overpowering a 20K BTU window A/C, we need a haven from the 100F+ crematory bays and an 82F room is far from relaxing. Seeing as my Haswell system should be up tomorrow night, I can finally suspend the handful of 250-1000 PPD rigs that are still running at the moment and still achieve better PPD.

    Sounds like a good plan :toast:

    I stopped by to visit my portable blast furnace erm.. GTX 580 folder today and shut down F@H and am running it there for crunching only. I have the ES Xeon hex-core chip running at 2.8Ghz on it atm and don't expect it to get too hot or use too much power. It used under 60w @ stock 2.13Ghz so maybe 100w now (temps were stable in the low 40's) :)

    Speaking of that Haswell system, what sort of PPD is it doing and what is the power consumption? :)


    I'm back from vacation now, so I've started to fire things up again. I have my 3770k going, the 3930k going part time, a 3537U going, and my trust 3612QM as well. The i7-2600 that I have at work also seems to be chugging along nicely :)
    I'm gonna see if I can find a way to get the i7-2700k going too--but no promise there :ohwell:

    What have I missed over the past week?

    Looks like FreeDC is stuck on yesterday's results :banghead: Hope they get it squared away at some point today....

    Anyone heard from manofthem? He hasn't been on the forum in over a week yet his rig seems to still be reporting regularly :confused:

    Hope everything is OK Bud? :eek:

    You could be making serious F@H points (like 40-50K) if you run the Beta WUs (10 of them have to be run with a passkey before you get bonus points). That's my suggestion for anyone who has HD 7xxx cards.

    even my 7770 makes good points. i think i need 4 more wu's to start getting bonus points for my work. 7870 does great too :D and ya about 40K or so with the 7870 and 17-20K with the 7770 ( it has to work longer :p )

    Yep, I get about 20K out of my XFX 7770 @ 1100 core. The 7950/7970 are much better though with 90-110K respectively at 1125 core. :)

    Started Folding on my GTX 780, PPD estimate was at 160k but the power went out overnight and it did not get to finish the unit. I will let it resume later on in the evening when its not so hot.

    My "main" box is not crunching for the past 12 hours or so. And probably won't return to crunching until monday.

    ~ a year ago, I got an extra good deal on an SSD so I bought it. Yet I did not have any use for it. Today, I decided to switch distros, so I popped the package and jammed the SSD into my box.
    I did a clean install today and now I am busy tuning / config'ing / customizing the system for my needs, along with cleaning my FS from a ton of crap I got over the years.
    I am going to set up BOINC when I am fully done with everything else. ETA, as already noted - monday.

    Cheers!
